Scholarly research interests include American intellectual history, African American studies & religious history, cultural studies, and visual culture theory within the neo-horror film genre. I’m concomitantly writing two monographs. The first monograph details the life and accomplishments of a family of distinguished African American preachers ranging from 1866 to 1940. The second monograph is a theoretical work that explores the construction and deconstruction of race, gender, and power in contemporary American neo-vampire films.
